Caption: Homo habilis feeding on a waterbuck. Illustration of Homo habilis hominins dismembering and feeding on the carcass of a female waterbuck (a large antelope) in the Olduvai Gorge region of what is now Tanzania. H. habilis is one of several extinct hominin species that form an early part of the human evolutionary tree. It lived between 2 and 1.6 million years ago in East Africa during the Pleistocene. It had a brain size just less than half that of modern humans. The name Homo habilis means 'handy man', adopted because the species used primitive stone tools.
